Lately, when Danny has come home from school, he is so riled up and overstimulated I just don't know what to do with him. He has hurt Charlotte pretty badly at least twice this week and even hurt little Tommy when he decided it would be a good idea to pick Tom up, carry him down the hall and deposit him on the bed, which Tommy promptly rolled off of. It was an accident, but a direct cause of Danny being so riled up; he has even less impulse control when stimulated. I'm sure it has something to do with the incessant rain of the last couple of weeks. He hasn't been able to go out for recess and we haven't played outside after school, so he probably has a lot of pent-up energy.
Obviously, I need to figure out what to do with the kid as winter is fast approaching and I cannot handle the hyperactivity and intense sensory seeking for much longer. Do any of you have similar issues with your kids? What do you when you can't get them outside? Help, please!
